About this recipe: This is a very tasty Asian-inspired dish made with chicken and broccoli in a spicy peanut sauce. If you like it mild, use less chilli, like it spicy, use more.

  • 3 tablespoons soya sauce

  1. Cook the rice in a rice cooker, or combine the rice and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the soya sauce, peanut butter, vinegar and chilli. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a wok over high heat. Add chicken, garlic and ginger and cook, stirring constantly, until chicken is golden on the outside, about 5 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium, and add spring onion, broccoli, peanuts and the peanut butter mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes, or until broccoli is tender, and chicken is cooked through. Serve over rice.
